A fun little shoot is a dry creek bed near my house...

Hi Pookie,

very nice shot. Lovely composition and inspiration. :)

Thank you... trying for a style of my own based on the Sucker Punch movie.

? what seems odd to me is non-pro voicing a un schooled opinion  ::) but again it wouldn't be canon rumors without it
two more to my Ignore list  ;D

I thought your girl looked great... I feel your pain though as my oldest has taken to hiding when the camera comes out.

This is Canon Rumors... where photography is merely a byproduct of senors and associated gadgets. This site is rife with armchair quarterbacks unfort...  Much respect for those that think the other way around and put photographs representing real world use to back up the talk.

On the subject of paper thin depth of field, here is an interesting discussion of the subject.

http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2012/06/in-defense-of-depth.html

Everyone doesn't like the eyes sharp and ears completely blurry. 

So far I don't believe anyone has commented on the chromatic aberration of the 85mm f/1.2. In two of the examples I sited by Gary, particularly if you click on the photo and get the full-size image, there is more CA than I would be willing to accept from any lens.  The picture of the young girl is daring, and the focus on the eyes exquisite.  The same young lady in the polka dot blouse is enchanting, but the CA in the out-of-focus white dots is extremely high.  Does no one else find the aberration of this lens a problem? 
6D, 60D, 5D Classic & 40D. 400 f/5.6, 300 f/4, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II & f/4 IS, 85 f/1.8, 50 f/2.5, 24-105 f/4, 15-85 f/4-5.6 & Zeiss 18mm f/3.5.

That would be a misquote. "not everyone likes the eyes sharp and ears completely blurry." would be more accurate  :D

Unless of course they are trying to saying that literally EVERYBODY dislikes sharp eyes are blurry ears :)  Which of course wouldn't be true.. but still.
